Saw some old and new friends at the Milan Knife show.
Here is a pic of Myself, Peli Valerio, Manrico Torcoli and Gianfranco Pedersoli.




Here are some works by Italian knifemaker guild members and associates:
Manuela Gualdi incisione


Reinhardt Schager



Silverstrelli engraved by a Beretta engraver



Puddu, looks to me like it was engraved by Terzi or Lepinous



Francesca Fracassi, Myself and Firmo Fracassi.



What a great bunch of talented folks. Always kind and gracious.

It is the Italian knife maker guild show, so it has the best knifemakers from Italy and a few other countries.
There are no dealers tables.
It is an excellent show, not a huge show, in the USA it would be a small to medium sized show, but the best italian makers are there.
And some of them are very hot right now, Emmanuel Esposito, for instance. I was hoping to win an Esposito in the drawing, but I did not get it. And he had a " Bid up" piece also, it went for in excess of 10,000 euro, I believe it was 12,000 euro final price.
It was very nice to see these engravers all in one place, I had met them all before in their studios, it was a pleasant surprise to see them all there.
